Tim Silvia on Blind Date (!?)

Filmed a few years ago, when he’d just become the heavyweight champion in the UFC. This is the weirdest theing I’ve seen all week.

Tim has a reputation for being a shithead but he comes off as a fairly nice guy in this clip. I think I’m going to have to try a grasshopper. Sounds pretty tasty!

Also, observe how awkward it is when he tries to explain a “submission hold” to his date. Fighting isn’t good first-date conversation material, and I’ve noticed most girls (at least where I live) don’t seem to find it sexy at all. At least not as a subject of conversation.
